    Because What Goes Around...

    I do believe in getting what you can out of what comes your way. Yeah I'm an opportunist. I don't think that 'everything happens for a reason' But I do think you can find 'reasons for everything'. Do you catch my drift? Cm

    Serendipity.....

    I've seen a few boats with this name. And a few clubs. Why doesn't this group have more members? Perhaps because many do not even know the definition of "serendipity". I'm fortunate enough to say that serendipity has played a pleasant role in my life at times over the years. One...
